Loma Linda University School of Pharmacy cordially invites pharmacists to attend a CE event titled “Updates in Pharmacy Law,” to be held October 11, 2012 at the beautiful Redlands Country Club, Redlands, CA. Dinner will be served.
The CE event will focus on the many new laws pertaining to pharmacy and the affect of such laws on the practicing pharmacist.
Leading the event is Fred G. Weissman, PharmD, JD. Dr. Weissman is the associate professor and associate dean for students/faculty affairs and admissions for the USC School of Pharmacy. Dr. Weissman received his Doctor of Pharmacy from the University of Southern California School of Pharmacy in 1963, and his law degree from Loyola Law School in 1989. Dr. Weissman's pharmacy experiences have been varied. He has practiced as a community pharmacist, hospital pharmacist, Director of Pharmacy Services for a 550 bed facility at St. Mary's Medical Center in Long Beach, California, and a military clinic pharmacist. His true enthusiasm has been in pharmacy education since 1969. In January 1998 he was appointed Associate Dean for Academic and Clinical Affairs at the U.S.C. School of Pharmacy where he also has a faculty appointment of Associate Professor of Clinical Pharmacy. Dr. Weissman has been involved in the coordination of several courses within the Pharmacy School curriculum: the pharmacy law course, the four courses in community pharmacy (including the clerkship course), the development and institution of the industrial pharmacy course (which was offered for the first time in Spring of 1999) and provision of lectures in several other of the school's courses (Clinical Therapeutics, Biological Systems, and the Non-Prescription Drug Course). He has also taught a popular Freshman Seminar Course for the last 10 years at the University Campus entitled, Medical Controversies and The Law. Among his publications, he has numerous articles on pharmacy law and clinical therapeutic issues and wrote a text he first published in 1997 entitled, A Guide To California Community Pharmacy Law. His fifth edition of this text was published in April 2005. He is presently working on a new text book entitled, Tort Case Law And The Pharmacy Profession. Dr. Weissman has been honored by his students by being chosen one of the outstanding teachers of the year four times during the last 12 years, and was chosen as the USC Pharmacy Alumnus of the Year for 2002.
